In this wet, hot Heresy Summer, Adam and Jason got together to play Heresy Zone Mortalis. Also, Adam hosted a heresy day at his house with some familar friends, so they all got together for a chat about the new rules.

In this episode which can only be categorized as "super chonk", we delve into the Rift War supplement and chat about Thousand Sons on Crusade. We also have a discussion with Tony from the Narrative Wargamer podcast about the successful Crucible of War event he put on recently.
